These days seem to be the busiest days of my life.A couple of my colleagues have been snuffering from fever for the last five days and the manager has asked me to do their works too apart from my own. For last five days I have not watche'd my favourite TV programmes.And for last three days I have been almost completely inactive on mylot too. Now I am exhausted.My body wants to take rest.My mind wants to relax, watch my favourite TV programmes and yes, join you here on mylot. But my work is still not finished.I have to finish it first.Without finishing my work,I would not be able to relax and enjoy my free time.I have decided to finish my work first.My favourite TV programmes can wait and so can mylot. I will finish my work first.

That's what I have decided to do.Actually themail two colleagues of mine who are now suffering from fever do my work every time I am on leave.Now it's my turn to do theirs.And you can't enjoy anything with a burden on your mind.

Even my boss is the same. Always allocating tasks which are beyond my job description to me. But i cannot complain and must get the job done else he might give me a negative review in my appraisal. But you sure did some good job that your boss was so pleased and gave you three days off. That is the reward of your hardwork

@Nawsheen LOL!! Bosses seem to be the same all over the world.So far I have somehow managed to remain in his good book,but it's not easy.I have to make sacrifices to please him.However,as a famous adage goes,"No pain,no gain."LOL!! If I want to gain something,I have to pay for it by inflicting "pain" on myself. You ( and myself too) may call it reward though.

@else34 you know sometimes when we are discussing among colleagues we think of ourselves like some modern slaves the kind of boss you have makes a difference. Yes you are right we may have to toil very hard at work but we do get rewarded

@Nawsheen You are right.My boss is of a different kind.....Hey, you deserve a thanks from me, for you have given me an idea.I should initiate a discussion about my boss.He's a hard taskmaster,but,at the same time, a....Sorry,let me stop here and write a post about him.....Tons of thanks once again for the idea.

you must do your work but not at the expense of your health, if you need a rest take a rest even if its just 5 minutes. work is important but so is looking after yourself.

Absolutely right.Let me inform you I'm not careless about my health.The workload has not prevented me from having physical exercises.I do yoga everyday and go out for long evening walks.I have finished the major part of my work and what remains will be finished in a day or two.

that is quite unfair, you are only 1 person i hope you do not get sick from being overworked too. Do they even pay for overtime?

What work? Work is first then comes the other things. Even I also give priorities to my offline things.
